New to the Group and needing some advice.
Hi!! My name is Nickhole, but I usually go by Nicky. I am 26yrs old and I am a divorced mom of 2 little boys. While I am not married anymore, I am not single. I do have a boyfriend. His name is Daniel and he is 21.
Austin Jr is my oldest and he is 5yrs old and he is the one with special needs. He gets speech therapy from his school. I also suspect he has Autism but his teacher refuses to recommend the testing. Because of his age I have to go through the school to get it done.I am not the only one who sees the signs. My Ex-MIL sees the same signs that she saw in my Ex-BIL who is now 17 who has Aspergers. He has had the correct therapy and what not because he was disgnosed at a young age...but I am afraid that it's going to be too late for my oldest by the time something is done...any advice on what to do? Because it's not like his father keeps the same rules for his house that they have here, they live with me, they see him 6 days a month...and his rules are no where near the same...so I think that is one of the reasons that my oldest acts out so much...he doesn't have structure. He's the blond on Dan's lap.
Ronald...AKA Ronie is my youngest and he is 3yrs old. He doesn't have any delays of any kind and he's actually ahead on everything according to the school. So, that's good. He doesn't have the same problems that his brother has when coming home after a visit to thier dads house.
But, that's us in a nutshell!!! :)
